The Provincial Grand Master has designated the Quarterly Communication of Grand Lodge held on Wednesday 12th September as our ‘Provincial Day Out’ in London. The meeting will open ‘around’ noon.
He would greatly enjoy the company of brethren from the Province at the lunch at The Freemasons’ Arms afterwards. If you wish to attend what is likely to be a very special day, you are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
Applications can only be dealt with online at http://www.durhamfreemasons.org/ (CLICK TICKETS) when accompanied by payment on a strictly first come, first served basis. We can book a maximum of 50 brethren in for the meal. A menu choice is available to book online. The three course meal includes a third of a bottle of wine and is priced at £30.
All Masters, Wardens at the time of the meeting, Past Masters AND MASTER MASONS are eligible to attend the meeting, and those intending to participate are encouraged to book travel early to get the best prices. Tickets for travel are not coordinated by Province.
Please note that Master Masons are eligible to attend this meeting and an application for a ticket has to be made by Province on their behalf to ensure entry to the Grand Lodge meeting. The online booking drop down box will ensure this is recorded. It is important that FULL NAMES are included in the booking as this is a requirement for ticket identification. Tickets will be distributed nearer the time.
All Brethren attending must wear the UGLE Craft Tie, or a plain Black Tie, and the appropriate aprons and Collars. Masters and current Wardens at the time are reminded they must wear their appropriate collar. Qualified Brethren should wear the Royal Arch Breast Jewel. White Gloves are worn in Grand Lodge. Provincial ties and Festival Jewels may NOT be worn to gain entry into Grand Lodge.

It is advisable to arrive in London no later than 10.30 am. For guidance a tube ride from Kings Cross to Covent Garden is about 20 minutes.
